Title:  The Nationís Report Card: Trial Urban District Assessment Reading 2011
Description: This report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) presents results from the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in reading. Representative samples of fourth- and eighth-grade public school students from 21 urban districts participated in the 2011 assessment. Student performance is reported as average scale scores on the NAEP reading scale and as percentages of students who attained the achievement levels set by the National Assessment Governing Board. District results are compared to results for all students attending public schools in the nation and large cities (i.e., cities with populations of 250,000 or more) overall and by race/ethnicity and eligibility for free/reduced-price school lunch. In 2011, scores for both fourth- and eighth-graders in five districts were higher than the scores for students in large cities, and scores for both grades were lower in nine districts. Among the 18 districts that also participated in the 2009 assessment, there was no significant change from 2009 to 2011 in the scores for any of the districts at grade 4, and just one district scored higher at grade 8. Scores for students in the remaining districts did not change significantly from 2009 to 2011.
